HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

The Comisionado Dominicano de Cultura en los Estados Unidos recently held their second annual Festival de Teatro Hispano del Comisionado, after which awards were presented. Yanelba Ferreira, Ronald Sarcos and Claudio Marcel Weisz were among the acting nominees. Best Actor honors went to Wilmar Saldarriaga, while Ydaiber Orozco nabbed Best Actress honors.

Abraham Makany is slated to act in the Mac Rogers play Advance Man. Directed by Jordana Williams and presented by Gideon Productions, the show is scheduled for a January run at the Secret Theatre in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens. For more information, click here.

Mike Smith Rivera is scheduled to act in the production New Year's Brunchin' Eve. Billed as "five brand new short plays about the end of the old and the beginning of the new," they were written by Dylan Dawson, Meghan Deans, Eric March, Willie Orbison and Erica Saleh, respectively, and directed by R.J. Tolan, John Giampietro, Tom Wojtunik, Collette Robert and Linsay Firman, respectively. Produced by and at Ensemble Studio Theatre (located in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen area), along with Youngblood, it is scheduled for a performance on New Year's Eve (natch).
